Full day 4 wheel drive, only 6 of us, to the Daintree National Park and to Cape Tribulation. An hour cruise on the Daintree River, then into the rainforest and finishing on the coast. Great way to finish sightseeing on this great adventurous holiday. Visited the Wujal Wujal Waterfall, revered by Aborigine women, no Aborigine men allowed near site, and guided to the waterfall by women of the Kuku Yalanji tribe. Was amazed to discover that not only are there over 500 different tribes of Aborigines in Australia, but that each have their own language and not one single language is in any way similiar to another.

Also swam in the Wobadabe Rainforest Creek - beautiful spring water, down from the mountains, a light tea colour, stained from the tanin leached by all the falling leaves in the Rainforest. Continued on to Cape Tribulation Beach for a late evening stroll before returning to "civilisation".
